It is with deep gratitude for what Christian Science has done for me and my family, that I write this testimony. Five years ago I came to Christian Science through a very dear friend. I was healed of constipation of twenty years' standing, kidney trouble, inflammation of the bowels, and several other troubles. All these were healed in four weeks, so I think I cannot be too grateful.

Three years ago my oldest daughter, then fifteen years old, came down with typhoid fever. This was on a Saturday morning. I turned to God for help and told her to lie down a while. Instead of getting better, however, she seemed to get worse; then fear took hold upon me, and as I was young in Science, I sent for a practitioner on Monday morning. We both worked faithfully as we could, in Science, but the case seemed to be very stubborn. Four days later my husband said to me, "Do you think Christian Science can cure her?" and he added, "If a wagon wheel is dry it has to be greased in order to run, and this case needs to have medicine." I told him that there is only one Physician, and that is God, and that if God could not heal her a doctor needn't try. The fifth day he said, "I can see that the girl is going to die," but I was assured that God would save her. To satisfy my husband, however, I said, "Get a doctor, then:" and he did. When the doctor came he said she was very sick, and that he would call another physician if she was not better the next day. He also said it would be seven or eight weeks before a change would be seen, but I knew there was only one lawmaker,—God.
